Mass demonstrations against unemployment, widespread corruption and poor services have been sweeping through southern Iraq, particularly in the provinces of Maysan, Karbala, Najaf, Babil, Wassit, Diwaniya and Dhi Qar, for seven days in row, prompting the outgoing Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi to rush from a NATO summit in Brussels to Basra to meet with local officials and tribal leaders in a bid to restore calm.

In a bid to quell the unrest, Abadi ordered security forces to be on high alert and imposed curfew in several southern provinces.
